UMNO’S ROBBER INSTINCTS COME TO THE FORE – SO MUCH FOR THE KING’S CALL FOR UNITY & RECONCILIATION!: ‘ONE OF THE STRONGEST VIEWS WAS TO RENEGOTIATE WITH MUHYIDDIN BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY POSTS GIVEN TO BERSATU’ – UMNO MPs AGAINST WORKING WITH DAP, KNOWN FOR ITS FIERCE ANTI-CORRUPTION STANCE, DUMP ‘ALREADY USED TOILET PAPER’ ANWAR

KUALA LUMPUR— Umno leaders are set to decide later this evening if the party would continue to back Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin or withdraw their support, following the embattled prime minister’s failed bid to declare an emergency.

Several of the party’s Supreme Council members said divergent views were given about what course of action to take next at this evening’s Barisan Nasional central leadership meeting, convened hastily as Muhyiddin’s position becomes more tenuous.

Umno supreme council member Datuk Zahidi Zainul Abidin claimed among the most popular option discussed at the hours long closed-door meeting was to force Muhyiddin to make more concessions in return for the party’s continued support.

“There were many views given,” the Padang Besar MP told reporters at the Putra World Trade Centre here.

Umno leader: Most BN MPs rejected working with Anwar, DAP

Various issues were raised during the BN lawmakers meeting in Kuala Lumpur this afternoon, among which is to withdraw support for Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin, said Umno supreme council member Zahidi Zainul Abidin.

The majority of them, he added, rejected the possibility of working with opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim and DAP.

“There were views (for us) to retract support for Muhyiddin. All sorts of views. But the majority of them said ‘no Anwar Ibrahim, no DAP’,” he told reporters after the two-hour meeting. MKINI
